Kagawa Prefecture Megijima "Sumiyoshi Shrine Grand Festival" festival dedicated to the god of the island – The shrine festival at Megijima island There is a surprisingly unknown island culture Kagawa Prefecture and in Takamatsu City Megijima and Ogijima take turns holding a summer festival every year, carrying a drum stand made of ropes handed down in Isshi Sōden and parading around the island. As the name suggests, the god of the island is a woman, and it has been handed down as a festival forbidden to women since ancient times so as not to be jealous. Drum stands are dropped and rolled wildly toward the gods, and at the end of the festival, the drum stands go into the sea. It seemed difficult to go through the small torii gate.

Was in Sapporo over the weekend for an errand and had enough time to stop by a few places before having to leave. Took a walk through Nakajima Park early in the morning and saw a turtle and a heron relaxing by one of the ponds. There were also a bunch of ducks enjoying breakfast in the grass nearby. Also managed to stop by Hokkaido Shrine and and the Sapporo Beer Museum, both of which were very cool. I really liked the architecture of Hokkaido Shrine, and it was fun reading the signs to read about the different emperors that had visited the shrine and in what year. The beer museum was fun as well. Learning about all the history was really cool, and seeing the different advertisements used throughout the years was pretty neat as well. Ended up buying matching cups and I got a shirt as well. Hokkaido Shrine and the Sapporo Beer Museum are definitely two of the best spots to visit in Sapporo if you ask me. I would have liked to visit Shiroi Koibito Park as well, but they were already closed by the time we were able to visit, so I guess that’ll have to wait for next time. Was a great time overall.

Omihachiman / Shiga Omihachiman / Shiga Although it was not that far away, for some reason I had not visited Omihachiman. When I went there, I was so attracted by the beautiful cityscape and river that I wondered why I hadn't been there before. The cloudy sky finally cleared up, and it was a very good memory. Everyone! Omihachiman is not so far away, but for some reason I had not visited there before. When I finally went there, I was so charmed by the beautiful cityscape and the river that I wondered why I had never been there before. The cloudy sky cleared up at the end of the tour, and it became a very good memory for me. I hope you will visit there, too!
